Joseph Reinicke The teacher will prepare an environment that is warm, appealing and adapted to learning. Being mixed in age and not graded, it discourages individual competition. The Montessori program is built to help the children make a foundation for a lifetime of unique learning. Dr. MontessorI Dr. Montessori began to work, with children, in Rome, Italy when she was 37 in Casa dei Bambini, The Children's House. After, she worked at the Orthophrenic Clinic in Rome and was assigned to work with children mentally impaired. Dr. Montessori did not always work and in her free time she spent time with a co-worker named Giuseppe Montesano who eventually became the father of Mario Montessori. Mario was thought to be Maria's nephew until her funeral, in 1952, they read her will and it was revealed that he is her son. Dr. Maria Montessori believed that nutrition was a big part of learning. She observed that the children did not learn anything useful through punishments or rewards.
Classroom In the classroom they study on five main areas: Practical Life, Cultural, Sensorial, Math and Language. The Practical Life area helps the children on life skills such as pouring a glass of water and cleaning up after themselves. The Founder of The Montessori Program Cultural is geography, history, general science, botany, zoology, music and art. The Sensorial Area helps the children develop and refine their five senses. Maria designed the materials to allow the child self correct themselve. MaterIals Montessori observed that children had a 'Sensitive Period' and in that time they needed to be presented with the right materials. Some materials have colors to match a number. Teacher The teacher's role is not to teach everything but to give a material and observe from a distance. During the day, the teacher will direct such as morning circle. The parents and the teacher have to recognize every accomplishment the child makes. The Montessori pre-school teacher helps the child build their self-confidence, self-motivation and self-discipline. Parent The parent is always the child's first teacher. ChIldren Children are from the ages of 2 to 6 and there are, on average, thirty children. Using the materials and interacting with the environment will help the child gain control of their arms and hands. Movement is perhaps the best way to learn. Working in groups with other student will help the child build his or her self-confidence. The use of materials in a sequence leads to creative thinking and unique problem solving. A community is made in a classroom which guides the child to notice their importance as a member of society. My SERVICE I worked with... Ms. Kymm Garcia and Ms. Bridget Swartzlander
